Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Boathouse No 4
« on: December 09, 2015, 02:58:05 PM »

Yesterday I made one of my regular visits to Portsmouth Dockyard and discovered that Boathouse No 4 is now open to the public. This historic building has been restored and converted into a small craft boatbuilding construction and repair centre with a public exhibition.

I have used my photos to create an article on the Model Boats website which you can see here: http://www.modelboats.co.uk/news/article/portsmouth-historic-dockyard-boathouse-no-4/22776

Well worth a visit if you get the opportunity.

Glad you aprove Colin, the company I'm the buyer for www.paragon-creative.co.uk completed the fit-out. We're all very proud if it! :-))

Excellent job Peachy, it deserves to succeed and a perfect location, both building and site. Might get a bit cold in the winter though.
